While there are many tales about ghosts in Myrtle Beach, Alice Flagg has been one of the most popular since the early 1800s. Long ago, Alice fell in love with a boy that just wasn’t “ good enough” for Alice according to her brother. The boy proposed and gave Alice an engagement ring. However, Alice fell ill and never got to be with her lover. Her brother stole the ring that she wore around her necklace and threw it off into the marsh.
